3. What are the great and less great things about modelling?
The enormous flexibility that’s asked can be straining at times and I get homesick when I’m away for longer periods of time - thankfully there’s all kinds of technology nowadays to keep in touch with family and friends. I’ve also struggled with keeping my weight down in the past. I’m not naturally skinny and the insecurity that came with this didn’t feel good at all. But I’ve grown now, both physically and mentally.
4. When did you notice that the super slim body that was expected from you, didn’t portray the real you?
I’ve always had to work very hard to achieve standard model sizes – and I never quite got there in the end. After a period of working, exercising and dieting intensively, my body just gave up and I knew right then and there that I had to stop trying to be someone I wasn’t. And it’s been the best decision ever! Both privately and professionally.
